A sold out evening event held at Dunston’s Holmeside Hall welcomed 280 supporters, all in wonderful festive cheer and with incredible generosity.
The evenings entertainment was from the magnificent Lorraine Crosby Band and Metro Radios DJ Kenny ‘D’. A special thanks and congratulations to the evenings host Mr. Derek Beasley. In over 20years of hosting the various charity fundraisers in Dunston, this was the most successful thus far.
The total amount raised from the evening was an incredible £8,268.00. This was augmented with support funding from Santander and a ROFLOW round up. Once again, our appreciation to Lorna Fagan and her colleagues. So, overall total amount for the event is £10,800.00.
We have two appointed long established charities to which the above will be divided equally. These being ABF The Soldiers Charity (est. 1944) and SSAFA The Armed Forces Charity (est. 1885). Both charities work together supporting serving personnel, veterans and their families.
We will shortly announce a summer fundraising event for the armed forces charities.
This will follow with the end of year Xmas fundraiser date and this being in support of a different charity.
Once again, thank you to all for the generous support and your kind attention
